Science Week Equipment Grant
Grants of up to $1000 will be available to every school that sends one or more teachers to a teacher workshop (limit one grant per school).
These grants will enable teachers to purchase equipment demonstrated in the workshops or other science-related equipment of their choice from select companies. All equipment will be shipped directly to the teachers at their school address.
Teacher Workshop attendance was required to participate in this Grant Program.
Schools represented by multiple workshop attendees will be allowed multiple grants but should not exceed the following guidelines:
- All grants will be awarded on a first come, first served basis, as funds are allotted. Participants will be encouraged to submit a “wish list”, as additional funds may be awarded if available.
- $500 grant for one teacher and an additional $250/school for each additional participant with a maximum of three participants total per school ($1000 maximum request per school). However, there are no limits on total teachers participating from one school.
- Teachers applying for the additional grant funds must list the names of each attendee from their school, on the grant form. Names will be verified via registration and sign-in sheets.
- Teachers in those schools should collaborate to determine how funds should be distributed and submit your requests together. A separate form will be used for each teacher.
Information on how to order your equipment will be provided on-site at the workshops. All equipment order forms will be submitted to the Pittcon 2014 Science Week Committee. Grant requests will be issued directly with vendors by the Pittcon 2014 Science Week Committee. Equipment orders will be shipped directly to the teachers at their verified school address.
